Half Iron distance race through ARoS Museum

half Iron distance race Aarhus 2011 aros

Runners ascend the stairs of the ARoS Museum in Aarhus, Denmark

While strolling through Aarhus in early July of 2011 I found myself in the middle of a race. The runners had already swam a couple kilometers in the bay and bicycled for 90 kilometers around the hills and suburbs of Aarhus before embarking on this half marathon. At this point in the half marathon the runners ran up hundreds of stairs before running through the museum and out the other side!

Ryoanji (龍安寺)

Ryoanji is best know for its zen rock garden–perhaps the most famous karesansui (枯山水) in the world. However, there is much more to see at Ryoanji, including a lake, these stairs, and other objects and paths.
